Cut is the branch that might have grown full straight,- Marlowe, Dr. Faustus
And burned is Apollo's laurel-bough,
That sometime grew within this learned man.
Faustus is gone: regard his hellish fall,
Whose fiendful fortune may exhort the wise,
Only to wonder at unlawful things,
Whose deepness doth entice such forward wits
To practice more than heavenly power permits.
Terminat hora diem; terminat auctor opus.

We have devolved to the point where our tools kill us. What geniuses!

Spidey: AT least we didn't get the to point where our creations actively go after us (like all the "Terminator," "Borg", "Bersekrker", etc., science fiction scenarios.
